~~~~ Delicious Herb Pesto ~~~~
Pulse garlic, anchovy, and shallot in food processor until chopped. With the food processor running, add lemon juice, parsley, kale, tarragon and chives.
Very slowly drizzle in olive oil until kale and herbs get sufficiently chopped and everything is the consistency of a pesto. Add olive oil depending on how big a “handful” of herbs is to you.
Season with salt and pepper. This recipe will make quite enough but you can save it for many different recipes!

~~~~~~~ For SANDWICH ~~~~~~~
Spread about 1 tablespoon of your fresh homemade Pesto onto each slice of bread
On one slice of bread, add 1 slice of cheese, sliced avocado, crumbled goat cheese, spinach, second slice of cheese, then top it with second slice of bread. Press together gently.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium low heat and add the sandwich to the oil, cook until bread is golden brown. Press down on the sandwich lightly, then flip the sandwich over and cook until second side is golden brown, and enjoy your healthy-gourmet sandwich!
